Makeup look isn’t complete until you apply a mascara. Either you have a full on smokey eyes or no-makeup makeup, mascara changes everything, puts everything together. Seems like there isn’t any special technique applying a mascara, but there is always room for improvement, right?
Eyelashes curlers should be your best friends. Curling your lashes before your mascara makes a huge difference – they hold shape better during the day and the mascara will fall out less (if you have that concern). If you want to achieve that baby doll look, curl the lashes throughout the whole length and not just at the roots. My favorite one is Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler.
Move the wand towards your temples. This will make them appear bigger, more open – give them that cat eye effect. Flirty, sexy look, who doesn’t like that? And try to get to the roots as closer as you can – sometimes that space of bare skin can be pretty eye-catching.
Less is more. The more you layer, the fluffier your lashes are. But don’t go too overboard cause they will start to clump and look … well … bad. So try to restrain yourself at 2 coats and no reapplying.
Don’t be a Scrooge. Through out your mascara every 3 months. Every time you open the tube and air comes in the dries out the product, plus it becomes a bacteria hotbed which may lead to the eye inflammation. The best way to keep track of those things – calendar reminder. At least I do so – every time I open a new mascara I set an alarm in 3 month time, when it goes off the mascara becomes a trash no matter how many times I’ve actually used it). Easy peasy.
Bottom eyelashes. If you want to achieve more significant and dramatic look apply mascara only on the outside half of the lower eyelashes, that will elongated you eyes, give you sort of sexy flirty look.
Oil. If you are using a waterproof mascara the
better best way to remover it is to use oil – olive oil, for example. Not only it will break up any product, but it also will condition you lashes, won’t strip the sensitive skin around eye area.
